The Philippines.- Bloomberry Resorts and Hotels’ Solaire Resort & Casino in Metro Manila has announced that it has completed its vaccination programme for its day-to-day staff.

The company started the free jab programme back in June. It said dependents were now being scheduled for their initial dose. Up to five dependents of each Solaire employee are covered by the programme.

Another casino in the Philippines, Okada Manila, also announced the launch of a free programme to vaccinate all of its staff against Covid-19 by the fourth quarter of 2021. The company will work with AC Health to vaccinate more than 5,700 team members.

Byron Yip, Okada Manila’s president, said: “Having our team members and their loved ones vaccinated won’t just keep them safer from the threat of Covid-19, this will also give them some peace of mind during this unprecedented and unpredictable time.

“More vaccinated individuals mean we can contribute to managing the number of Covid-19 cases in the country while also helping with restarting the economy.”
